Brief information. Kelvin Kiptum broke the marathon world record in Chicago. How? Yes, you read that right. The marathon world record. Eliud Kipchoge's? Yes. But wasn't Kipchoge unattainable? Yes. Well, no. Kiptum, another Kenyan, left behind his 2:01:09 and signed about 2:00:35 that, in addition, break the barrier of two hours and one minute and approach to cross the two hours.

In the third marathon of his life, Kiptum, 23, is today the wonder of athletics, he rose to fame in the Vaslencia marathon, in December 2022, in his debut in the test. He then performed 2:01:53 and became the third man in history, after Kipchoge himself and Ethiopian Kenenisa Bekele (2:01:41). But this year, in London, he clocked 2:01:25, 16 seconds behind Kipchoge's primacy. I already had it very close. Would it get even closer? Would you overtake it?

Two questions and one answer: yes.
